The world in which Development and Operations (DevOps) teams function is more dynamic than ever before. Agile software development methodologies are driving faster, more frequent releases.
In addition, application sprawl has made it difficult for IT Operations teams to roll out changes and maintain uptime for both new and legacy environments. All too often Operations teams have poor visibility into system status and failures, as new code is rolled out.
A natural tension exists between Development and Operations. Development is tasked with shipping more code more often, while Operations is tasked with maintaining service levels. When that tension isn’t managed properly, IT performance suffers, as does business performance and profitability. These challenges can be addressed through three best practices that have been found to improve both the application release management process and organizational performance.
